Black Hollywood Actors Educate Us on Evil America
Guest Author: Christopher Graham
There is an interview at Parade.com with Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker, who are costars in The Butler, an upcoming movie directed by Lee Daniels (also interviewed and also black).
The Butler seems to be another of Hollywood’s attempts to get black people to keep bemoaning “white culture” as it examines life in the White (!) House through the benevolent and undoubtedly wise eyes of the titular black butler who served under eight of America’s presidents, all of whom were terribly white. It is an effort to shame white people for having the audacity to move on and progress beyond the middle of the last century. I guess America doesn’t hear enough of what black people think about these issues.
You can read more about the movie on IMDB, but I want to focus instead on some of the remarks made in the “my oppression beats your oppression” interview, in which the three blacks are asked to share their bland, tired opinions on racism in America and the word “nigger,” referred to, naturally, with a seeming air of superstition as “the N-word” (seriously, grow the F-word up, people).
When asked to talk about their experiences of racism against them, as if blacks need any prompting to talk about it at all, Mr. Daniels had this to say: “It’s a given. I can’t even get a taxi [in New York]. I send my [white] assistant out to get a taxi because I can’t.” (Brackets originally in the interview.)
Of course the analytical mind realizes there is an ocean of difference between being a racist and being a realist, or what Richard Butrick describes at The American Thinker as being interested in self-preservation when “We don’t have time to check out our presumptions. From a survival point of view it is better to err on the side of caution[…]. We have to profile.”
Surely Lee Daniels can’t be blaming taxi drivers for profiling when, according to FBI statistics, as explained by Pat Buchanan, “Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites [nationally], they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse.” And according to the New York Police Department, blacks are responsible for 55.5 percent of the city’s murders, even though they only make up 25.1 percent of the population.
Fernando Mateo, president of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, encourages racial profiling among taxi drivers “because the God’s honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these drivers are blacks and Hispanics.” And Mateo himself is half-black and half-Hispanic, though I’m sure the media could rationalize some reason to call him a white Hispanic.
Since this offensively white society bars me from saying things that blacks have total freedom to say, I’ll allow black philosopher (as opposed to a black-philosopher) Thomas Sowell to address this taxi issue, which he did in a 1999 column:
Given the crime statistics, do I have a right to demand that taxi drivers risk their lives for my convenience? What am I going to say to the widows and orphans of dead cabbies? “Hey, I have to get to the Manhattan Institute to give a talk and don’t feel like bothering with Hertz or Avis”? That would be a very hard sell, especially to the widows and orphans of black taxi drivers, who also pass up black males at night.
Cabbie niggers be fronting.
And on that warrantlessly “powerful” word, Mr. Daniels tells Parade, “It’s a word I used quite a bit, until Oprah sat me down and talked to me about its power.”
Then the sage Oprah chimes in: “You cannot be my friend and use that word around me. It shows my age, but I feel strongly about it.”
I guess she probably wouldn’t be interested in being friends with this respectable young black man who made a rap video on the fly after the re-election of President Obama, in which he hollers his praises repeatedly at the self-held camera that Obama is not only a nigger, but that he is his nigger. The brute also apparently had his Caps Lock button stuck when he wrote the following description for the video, which I have only corrected for its liberal use of colloquialisms and illiterate-level grammar:
Obama [is] My [sic] nigg[er], and he [is] back in office!! OBAMA [has] GOT MY NIGG[ER’]S BACKS[.] FUCK ALL YOU BITCH[-]ASS REPUBLICAN[-]ASS NIGG[ER]S! WE [are] GETTIN[‘] CRUNK[,] HOE! OBAMA [is] MY MF [motherfucking] NIGG[ER] AND WE [are] IN OFFICE! OBAMA DIDDN’T [sic] WIN THE ELECTION! ALL MY NIGG[ER]S WON THE ELECTION! ALL MY NIGG[ER]S IS FINNA [finally] BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE POPPIN[‘] BOTTLES!! FUCK WHAT YOU HEARD[,] BITCH[.] OBAMA [is] MY NIGG[ER]. WE STAYED STRAPPED UP WITH THAT FRESH LEGISLATION [a big word, bravo!] FOR THAT ASS [huh?]! OBAMA CARE[S,] BITCH! FUCK YO [your] WIFE WITH THAT LONG DICK!
It doesn’t at all show in his writing, so, just to remind you, this lad is black. (The cock worship toward a fellow black male is one of several dead giveaways.)
There is the bizarre belief among many American blacks that because bad things were done to their forebears, whites must sit down, shut up, and accept the new equality: blacks can say “nigger” and all variants thereof, and whites must smile and chuckle nervously.
Counter-proposal: since a white woman is raped by a black man an average of every 34 minutes in America and white women must deal with that, what if we segregated black men from white women to make up for it? We’ll outlaw whites from saying “nigger” and blacks from approaching white women, deal? Or you can loosen your grip on the past and we can get the ball rolling on this whole “progress” thing.
Too fast, I know, I know. We still haven’t heard enough about how racist America is. Even though we just doubly elected to the presidency a pretty-much-black man, he still has the biological defect of having, through his mother, the tainted blood of the White Devil. So, please, Hollywood, don’t stop preaching.
